Gregory Coleman, Liberian National Police (LNP) former Inspector General, has formally taken over the National Bureau of Concession (NBC) as the new director general.
In takeover remarks, Mr. Coleman set his first priority as cleaning-up the system to ensure that concession companies are in compliance with government’s policy.
Coleman said his administration will first want to understand why concession companies are not in compliance with government’s policies before he institutes action, emphasizing that the reason for concession is to create jobs for the citizens.
“Though I came from a security background, I can assure the President and the public that I will work hard to ensure that the pro-poor agenda of the government is accomplished,” he said.
Coleman promised to work with members of the Senate Committee on Concession as well as other legislative teams that have oversight on the entity to achieve maximum productivity and promote government’s pro-poor agenda.
He noted that transformation of the NBC requires the collective effort of all well-meaning Liberians, adding that without collaboration with other relevant oversight groups, it would be impossible for any transformation to take place here.
Coleman further promised to remain professional in the discharge of his duty, adding that as head of the NBC, he will work tirelessly to promote government’s policies.
